Dragon's Dogma is the kind of game that's loathed and adored in equal measures, depending who you're talking to. But at least everyone can agree on one thing: it's not an easy game.

At least not until Capcom releases the next patch, which will add an easy mode. The patch is currently announced for Japan, with no plans yet announced to bring it to the rest of the world, though we'd count on it arriving at some point.

We've sure got our fingers crossed, at least. If Capcom does add an easy mode to the US release, we might even be able to get past the first town without being slaughtered by the first group of random bandits we encounter.

Did you find Dragon's Dogma too hard? Just right? Too easy? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter. By the way, everyone asking for a hard mode instead of an easy mode must have a lot more patience than us.
